     I teach courses in gifted education at The College of William and Mary. Before joining the faculty at The College of William and Mary, I served as program coordinator for Programs in Gifted Education at The University of Alabama. I earned my Ph.D at the University of Connecticut in Educational Psychology with an emphasis on Gifted and Talented Education. My research interests include examining the effects of differentiated curriculum and instruction on and addressing specific affective and personality characteristics of gifted and talented students.

     I am proud to have recently finished two terms as Network Member to the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) Board of Directors. From 2001-2007, I served as newsletter editor for the Research & Evaluation Network and chair of the Graduate Student Committee.      

     Currently, Dr. Stoddard, Dr. Robbins and I are hard at work analyzing data from Year 1 of our Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Program entitled, Project CIVIS. Soon, we will have four challenging middle school US History units of study ready to put into the hands of GT teachers!
